about

During an imminent tragedy, the church member is confronted by the fact that the leading deacon will call a meeting a week from Tuesday to deal with the current present fact that the church is on fire.

A series of greater tragedies ensue as the church policy to conduct a meeting to decide what to do trumps the threat of fire, tornadoes and even the Lord's return!

lyrics

The church song

I noticed something different in the church one Sunday.
There was a cloud of smoke coming from the church floor.
I rushed up and told the leading deacon
Let's get everybody out! The church is on fire for sure.

He said, "Well, that's a point well put. It's a timely suggestion.
We're sure to bring it up in the very next meeting of a board of deacons
A week from Tuesday. I don't know why, but it's our church policy...
Here at the first Naza-Metho-Bapti-Costal, Seventh Day Orthodox,
Lutheryterian, Non-Denominational Church of the Lady of the Mind.

When I went back to church on the very next Sunday
They had a tent set up by the burned out building front.
I stood up to warn the congregation
There's a tornado coming, everybody run!

The choir sang, "Well, that's a point well put. It's a timely suggestion.
We're sure to bring it up in the very next meeting of a board of deacons
A week from Tuesday. I don't know why, but it's our church policy...
Here at the first Naza-Metho-Bapti-Costal, Seventh Day Orthodox,
Lutheryterian, Non-Denominational Church of the Lady of the Mind.

Well, we had an open air meeting on the very next Sunday.
When the trumpet blew, and the clouds were rolled away.
And I stood up and yelled to the congregation,
Lift your heads up high, the Lord might be coming today!

They all sang, "Well, that's a point well put. It's a timely suggestion.
We're sure to bring it up in the very next meeting of a board of deacons
A week from Tuesday. I don't know why, but it's our church policy...
Here at the first Naza-Metho-Bapti-Costal, Seventh Day Orthodox,
Lutheryterian, Non-Denominational Church of the Lady of the Mind.
